Rick Scott refuses to be pinned down on school safety legislation

Rick Scott refuses to be pinned down on school safety legislation

The bill was scheduled to return to the House floor late yesterday for what could be a final vote.

The written dialogue between Romano and Sawchuk offers a sobering perspective on the gun control debate, which is frequently steered toward hyperbole and polarization, rather than grounded conversation. Federal law already prohibits anyone under 21 from buying a handgun.

During that meeting, he seemed to encourage Sens.

I had truly become so jaded to the cycle of thoughts and prayers, followed by the inundation of statistics and descriptions of the propagators of gun violence, and, finally, inaction from our legislative body. "I just can't imagine that Nikolas Cruz can commit such a heinous crime and then as a result we tell, potentially, a 20-year-old single mother living alone that she cannot purchase a firearm to defend herself", Fant said.

Even Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) seemed pessimistic that the Republican-controlled Congress could get much passed. Fant, who is running for attorney general, said the gun restrictions violate the constitution.

"This is a nonstarter", said Thurston, a Democrat who represent part of Broward County in South Florida. The measure, a response to the shootings at a Parkland high school that left 17 dead, is supported by the victims' families. Wednesday marked a return to normalcy at the Parkland, Fla., school, as it was the first full day with regular class schedules since the February 14 mass shooting.

Rep. Tom Leek, R-Ormond Beach, was among Republicans urging support Wednesday for the measure, saying he was angered by the heavy lobbying and mean-spirited emails sent by those on both sides of the gun-control issue.

Those measures included a "red flag law", a law considered and adopted by many states in order to confiscate firearms from risky individuals. Local business leaders need to realize they have a platform unlike any other. The Columbine and Parkland shootings are examples of school threats that were acted upon.

The Parkland shooting on Valentine's Day that left 17 people dead has renewed the national debate surrounding gun control, with numerous survivors becoming the most vocal proponents of legislative action. They agreed more needs to be done, including expanded access to mental health counseling to prevent unstable students from reaching the breaking point and committing violence. According to another article by 9NEWS, the Cherry Creek School District is taking these threats seriously and holding accountability to the people responsible.

And on Tuesday, New York's state assembly passed five gun control bills.

The backlash from the Parkland shooting has brought awareness to threats being made online and has made people more aware of school shooting threats and how to react to them.
